"Live for something rather than die for nothing." - George Patton
I often forget how fortunate I am to be able to come home every night and embrace my loved ones. I am able to go out into the world knowing that I am, for the most part, safe. I forget that we have brave men and women serving in our armed forces, placing their lives in the front lines of fire on a daily basis. Although we, as human beings face danger at home, our soldiers have made it their duty to protect us. I want to thank them for their sacrifice and all they do for us. Thank you.
Facts about the Military:

- Nearly 20% of service members in Iraq and Afghanistan experience acute stress, depression, and/or anxiety. Getting thank-you notes has a positive impact on soldiers' moods. Send cards to deployed soldiers to let them know we appreciate their service.
- Less than 28 percent of Americans between the ages of 17-23 are qualified for military service, that's only about 1-in-4.
